Food Basket Farm

Food Basket Farm provides a wide range of farm produce, salads and herbs, some of them unique in Jamaïca. The agriculture industry is expanding in Jamaïca, however there is no ready access to a wide variety of seedlings, thereby limiting farmers. Food Basket Farm also has an advantage in terms of the location, cool climate and the richness of the soil.
